Looks really nice Bud. Count me in on an AVS night. I am only about 1hr south. I am sure the wife would love to view it as well. I have been showing her so many pics her head is spinning as we are getting close to getting started on our basement!

Everything is looking great! We have some similarities, other than you have finished your HT much faster than me. My HT has a coffered ceiling with LEDs above the crown, and I also have German Shepherds. One of mine looks just like yours sitting in the chair on the right side in the last photo they are pictured. This one has a more pointy snout compared to the other just like mine and people are always asking if she is mixed. What's the story on this one as far as the exact breed?

BTW, I added a few of these in the theater room in black to the outlets that are in the columns behind the counter and to the sides of the counter. They work well and are not very bright in such a dark room, just enough light to see where you're walking. Not distracting at all. I bought a box of 10 for the upstairs in white and are great. Not the cheapest, but you don't have to worry about knocking into nightlight plugged in. Not sure if anyone else is using them.

I continue to learn from your build Bud! New question about your sconce installations:

Basically, HOW in the world did you install them?!? Meaning, normally for sconces there is a circular wall box, the light's installation frame attaches to the wall box, one wires the light to the incoming electrical cables with wire nuts, stuffs the wire nuts into the electrical box, and attaches the light itself to its installation frame and that's that.

Did you just stuff the wire nuts directly behind the sconce wall block itself???

Thanks in advance Bud. I have finished my first "column facade / wrap" that will be installed "on top of" the existing builder's columns that I didn't want to tear out, and am faced with the fact that the sconce needs to be installed 2" to the left of the existing circular wall box ... and am struggling to figure out how the heck I am going to do it.

Hey Bud! How have you been enjoying the new room?

If you are in the mood for giving a demo, let me know. :D;)
Happy to do a demo. I've been enjoying the room and I've gotten some of my weekends back to do other things besides the room and travel ball. I'm around the next two weekends.

The wires is pulled through the blocking, which is screwed and glued to the double drywall. In my case, the since had a shallow plate that I screwed into the blocking and was big enough to hide the wires/nuts. You could modify the block to accept a shallow box (like on you see for ceiling fans - the pancake ones if you want something to accept mechanical screws.
